Chelsea have announced the signing of 21-year-old star Kai Havertz from German outfit Bayer Leverkusen for £71million.
The Germany international, who has been heavily linked with the Blues all summer, finally completed his move to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen, putting pen to paper on a five-year deal.
Speaking on the Chelsea official website, Havertz said: I am very happy and proud to be here,” Havertz told the club’s website. “For me it is a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea and I can’t wait to meet all the players and the trainers.”
The Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia, speaking on the talisman said: “Kai is one of the best players of his age in world football, so we are very happy that his future lies at Chelsea.
“He has proven pedigree in one of the best leagues in Europe, he plays for the German national side and he is an exciting, dynamic talent. We are delighted to be able to add his versatility and quality to the squad before the season begins.”
Havertz’s attacking mentality is one of the beast across Europe as he stamps his name as one of the finest players out of Germany.
Last season, the 21-year-old finished with 18 goals in all competitions, while also providing nine assists for his teammates.
While he finished 10th on the highest goal scorers list in the Bundesliga, he also finished 6th-placed for dribbles attempt with 119 attempts, and ninth for chances created with 59 chances created.
Havertz becomes Frank Lampard’s sixth signing of the summer after Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, English full-back Ben Chilwell, Veteran Center-back Thiago Silva, and OG Nice’s Malang Sarr all trouped to the Bridge.
